Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – July 14, 2014
A typical day would consist of you coming to work and preparing yourself to be on the sales floor, clocking in yourself in and checking your work email for any new promotions and sales to pitch at the customers to getting them to sign up with Bell.
I learned the connection you must make with a customers in order to make sales and weekly targets. how to open and close stores. preparing the sales floor.
Management was always there over looking the sales floor and if you where stuck in a situations with a customer the mangers would either take over or help guide you through it and after they would give you pointers and tips on how to deal with it next time.
My co-works where very open and always willing to help you close a sale or if you need help doing tasks they would always be there to give you a hand.
Hardest part was when you were trying to close a sales with a customer but that was also the best part cause it gave you a challenge and made you feel good when you closed it.
The most enjoyable, part was the people I worked with.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – September 7, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job was the party at the end of the year with all employees. I learned the best way to sell services, my co-workers were so friendly. the hardest part of the job was when the system was down, we used to take notes of each call and do the report once the system was restored. There used to be a lot of change in management.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – August 12, 2016
As much as I enjoyed working for Bell, I also hated the fact that some of things done for clients were unethical. Franchise's goal was just to make money and customer's best interest was widely ignored.

Direct Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – August 10, 2016
Terrible company, only accept from Nordia if your desperate for a job. no notice on schedule, sales targets that change once you get close. Managers with huge personal issues to which they take out on workers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – August 10, 2016
As a commission sales driven culture working here tends to be cut throat and a bit underhanded at times. Management is extremely top heavy. When sales targets aren't being met the CEO will berate the marketing team who in tern will berate the national managers who will turn around and etc, The problem being that the anger flows down but the explanations never made it back up as was the case in Alberta when the oil field crashed and no one was spending money.
On the plus side they do offer a decent training program, benefits package, and competative commissions structure.
